Calls to Keep Fusion Voting, Create Robust Public Matching System at First Hearing of State Campaign Finance Commission

The New York State Public Campaign Financing Commission held its first public hearings on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.  Those who testified before the commission – including academics, good government groups, and those who administer New York City’s public financing program – were largely in agreement over the major policy questions at stake.  The majority expressed their support for a public match of at least $6-to-$1, accessible qualifying thresholds, and lower contribution limits, among other details.
